Monday’s are “GTD Simplified” days here at FlippingHeck.com
A “Someday/Maybe” is an action or project that you’d like to do…. at some point, not necessarily now.
I have to hold my hand up here and say that I don’t really “do” someday/maybe lists. Sure, I might jot down the occasional idea for a blog post or my next project that’s going to make me my first million on the Internet but everything that gets written down generally gets done.
I can see how easy it would be though to end up with a Someday/Maybe list that’s beginning to look like a small telephone directory!
So, when it comes to your Weekly Review, make sure that you start to prune down your someday/maybes instead of just adding that project or action to the list that you can’t be bothered to do just yet. Otherwise, your Someday/Maybe list is going to turn into a big unmanageable pile of you-know-what that you don’t want to go near.
It might be that you do want to do everything that’s on the list. That’s fine too but how about splitting it into more manageable chunks like six, 12, 18 and 24 month periods? That way you’re not overwhelmed and can focus on stuff you’d like to start sooner rather than later.
What are your thoughts on Someday/Maybe lists? Do you use them? And if so, how do you manage them without going mad?!
